CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM

  • Decriminalize the small-scale possession of drugs for personal use, to end the flow of nonviolent drug addicts into the criminal justice system.
  • Create well-staffed and first-class treatment centers where people are willing to go without fear of being prosecuted and with the confidence they will receive effective care
  • Consider alternatives to incarceration. The current justice system sets inmates up for failure on the outside, denying them easy access to jobs and forcing them back to a life of crime.
  • End the militarized expansion of police powers which leads to high potential for violence and disruption.
